Blessed Chiara Luce Badano experienced immense pain and suffering at the end of her life. During her cancer treatment, chunks of hair would fall out at a time. As she threw them away, she would whisper, “For you, Jesus. If you want it, I want it too.” She suffered a lot but was always radiant with joy. Bishops and priests would go to visit and console her and leave feeling lifted up and cared for. Her joy was so contagious other patients on the wing would come into her room just to be near her. She made a decision during a very dark time in her life. She could be bitter, feel self-pity, feel angry. Or she could change the world with the little time she had left. She chose joy. She chose to draw close to the suffering of Christ. She said, “I suffered a lot, but my soul was singing!” She also said, “I have nothing left, but I still have my heart, and with that I can always love.” How are you called to say yes to Jesus through the difficulties in your life today? What time, suffering, or hardship can you give to the Lord? What can you whisper to Christ as a sweet gift...”For you Jesus. If you want it, I want it too.”
